1:02 pm
seven tane astray or and the netherlands have requested russia to enter into negotiations to open up a dialogue about its conduct and to seek reparations well it speaks well to syria's worry chalons who's in st petersburg rory why have the netherlands in australia taken this step and what does it mean. well they basically reacted to the announcement from the joint investigation team yesterday that essentially russia has provided the buka missile system that shot down m.h. seventeen and that this boot system came from a specific brigade of the russian army the fifty third anti aircraft missile brigades that the system had been moved across the russian ukrainian border in the summer of two thousand and fourteen basically with the full assistance of the
1:03 pm
russian military and then moved back again into russia rafter the plane was brought down the evidence that was provided by the j.i.t. yesterday in their press conference seems to have been convincing enough for the netherlands and australia to take this step together now the netherlands says that holding a country legally responsible is a complex legal process essentially what they want to happen is for russia to acknowledge its responsibility in some way to enter into negotiations with both of these countries negotiations that ultimately would result in some kind of recompense for the families for the people who lost their loved ones to your hundred ninety eight people die passengers and crew in the downing of m.h. seventy this is a process that they say which might well take some time it's a complicated one and they are saying that
1:04 pm
a next possible step is to go to an international courts or other international organization to basically take this forward morry russia's always denied any involvement in both the war in ukraine and in the downing of m.h. seventeen is that likely to change anytime soon. yeah i mean russia is in a seemingly constant state of denial at the moment about a good many things about m.h. seventeen about its role in the conflicts in eastern ukraine about the poisoning of the script politics cetera the list is a long one and we have heard over the last few hours since the j.i.t. press conference yesterday another long list of russians in aisles the defense ministry has said it's a century the system was not in the did not belong to its army forces that it was a ukrainian army system that the production code shown in the j.i.t.
1:05 pm
press briefing yesterday was an old one and that it has decommissioned all of its all of its missiles from that era the kremlin has also said that it does not really trust the j r t s findings that russia has not been involved in the investigation and when russia has provided information to the j.i.t. it was ignored the russian government has so much invested i think in its foreign policy decisions of the moment that he cannot really step back from from those commitments it cannot acknowledge the actions that it has taken might resulted in something like the downing of m h seventeen for the current administration in the kremlin it would be a sign of weakness to do so and so i think until the administration inside the
1:06 pm
kremlin changes we're not likely to get any kind of admission of responsibility from the russians russia does not extradite its video ins to face justice in foreign court let alone military personnel who might have had an involvement in something like the downing about seventy which took place essentially in a in a client in conflicts taking place. in a neighboring country so no i don't think there is going to be an admission or dick knowledge ment's coming from moscow any time soon but it might have had any culpability for what happened rory many thanks sometimes there was a story challenge them live in st petersburg. north korea says the cancellation of a planned summit with the us president is against the wishes of the world donald trump has called off the meeting claiming tremendous anger and open hostility from the north but pyongyang says that it's still open to resolving the issues you have pretends he reports. a few hours after releasing a letter counseling the plan summit with north korea president donald trump issued
1:07 pm
a warning spoken to south korea and japan and they are not only ready should fully sure reckless acts be taken by north korea but they are willing to shoulder much of the cost of any financial burden any of the costs associated by the united states in operations if such an unfortunate situation is forced upon us however the president suggested the singapore summit could still happen it's possible that the existing summit could take place or a summit. at. a later date doldrums letter to north korea was a curious mix of threats and polite regret sadly based on the tremendous anger and open hostility displayed in your most recent statement i feel it is appropriate at this time to have this long planned meeting the letter said you talk about your
1:08 pm
nuclear capabilities but ours also massive and powerful i pray to god they will never have to be used but the president added i felt a wonderful dialogue was building up between you and me and ultimately it is only the dialogue that matters if you change your mind having to do with this most important summit please do not hesitate to call me or write us secretary of state also said the next move is for the north koreans to make chairman kim why that decision to make for himself as president said we welcome their call their outreach to head back down that did we consult with our allies about the decision before making a public i don't want at least advise them that it's was coming i don't want to get into who all we notify does the white house i think will speak to that in a statement the south korean government said it was attempting to make sense of what precisely president trump means the north koreans and it was spurred by repeated threats from administration officials that north korea could face the
1:09 pm
libyan model if no deal was reached that refers to the overthrow and killing of libyan leader moammar gadhafi in twenty eleven the fear now is a hardening of positions on both sides i'm a little bit concerned now that if the trump people give up on this completely that we might be headed back to where we were six months ago fire and fury and the rest of it right it's important that we keep talking to the north koreans and we not slide back to fire and fury still for the moment the president says he is ready for what he called constructive dialogue with north korea i really believe given young people who want to do what's right so hopefully the work she had written see al-jazeera washington reaction now from china i'll just say as adrian brown is in beijing. well upbeat and considered three words from china's foreign ministry spokesman lew kang on friday he said it was obvious there had been obstacles in the process preparing for the summit but it was also clear that the two sides were still willing to sit down and talk and china would do whatever it could to ensure that that happened and he appealed to washington and pyongyang to remain patient
1:10 pm
china and north korea appear to be talking with one voice of the moment their language is both restrained and measured now remember president donald trump has accused president xi jinping of essentially seeking to undermine the summit he says that president xi has influence over kim and he's using that influence to try to gain leverage in the current trade negotiations between washington and beijing down analysts here in china have essentially suggested that senior officials in the trumpet ministration the vice president mike pence the national security advisor john bolton had been out to actually scope of this summit right from the start and at the end of the day their voices have triumphed. at least forty nine people drowned when their boat capsized on a river in the democratic republic of congo it happened on wednesday in the northern province of shopper around fifty people survived one of the main forms of

1:18 pm
being sought as for the injuries police and paramedics say they had to take people to local hospitals with three critically injured people taken to hospitals in toronto where the most acute medical facilities are what we don't have here is any word as to be the motive behind this there's absolutely no speculation by anyone at the moment least or the authorities or otherwise and there's no word on whether there is a threat to public safety here we have seen it for weeks from the foreign affairs minister of india external affairs minister india so far edge saying her government is monitoring the situation just in case their health is needed but right now it appears to be preliminary we're waiting for the police to release more information as their ongoing investigation genius. the european union has introduced sweeping new legislation to protect the privacy of its citizens known as g.d.p. odd general data protection regulation it requires all entities to protect the personal data of all e.u. residents that means any information could be used to identify
1:19 pm
a person including photos posted on social networking sites and your e-mail address under the g g g d p r people will get expanded rights to access the information that a company has collected on them for free people will also now have the right to be forgotten which means that companies must delete someone's data if an individual withdraws consent for it to be held companies will have to replace long and complex terms and conditions with a simple to understand concept for qwest consent rather request and finally if a company has a data breach of this now inform all of its users within seventy two hours will many organizations say they are ready for the new rules some major u.s. websites have already been blocked in europe brother and reports from berlin. european data holders have had two years to work out a game plan for g.d.p. but the protection law intended to create
1:20 pm
a level playing field for data use has hit smaller groups hard. this youth football club in berlin uses membership data to circulate newsletters and fixture lists the staff are all volunteers g.d.p. are is a major headache we have the home page and actually i love having a photo with every team on the on the home page no we're not sure if we can they do it you're not going to be ready by friday are you. not completely. it's awful. for europe's tech companies g.d.p. are is an incentive to innovate his nibs. cappuccino at this trade expo in paris there are voice activated devices that don't actually share any data at all the consumers will get to choose right and they'll know better so they'll choose for equal features they'll choose the one that protects the privacy best get it wrong though and a twenty four million dollar fine is
1:21 pm
a genuine worry it is it is and it's particularly roaring because you cannot be sure that you have implemented the rules the right way at the moment the recent deluge of g.d.p. our emails shows the ongoing uncertainty some ask customers to explicitly opt in others put the onus on the customer to opt out and others simply mention updated previously settings. the facebook bridge and it's a scandal may seem a world away from the compliance requirements of a small sports club such as this but the fact is that even seemingly innocuous data when put together really starts to matter lobby groups and campaigners have broadly welcomed g.d.p. are as a reset button a wake up call they say for e.u. citizens to engage with some fundamental questions do i really want to continue giving this company my data and we need to do that is that it isn't necessary from us for me and to make a conscious attempt or
1:22 pm
a conscious decision and what data they share a recent survey of german companies revealed that just twenty five percent of them expected to be able to meet the g.d.p. our deadline e.u. data regulators are expected to be sympathetic for now but after extra time comes penalties paul brennan al-jazeera berlin. calland is a legal officer with privacy as national she joins us now live from london before we talk about the nitty gritty of what this really means for everybody this talk about what one of the big bug bears here make it stop please people not just in europe but all around the world being inundated with e-mails from companies pleading with us to accept you terms and conditions so that we can quote stay in touch britain's information commissioner says that all companies don't need to do that what's going on here. i don't say that's a good question and i think it's important to kind of take that step back and
1:23 pm
remember why i did it because important and every now around the world has the right to privacy and the right to data protection and what we've seen as more and more data is generated in our every day life is that companies are amassing more data and they're using it in ways that people wouldn't expect their it's blighting their data and what t.p.r. is doing is placing limits on this and. with these e-mails you can already see that the law is having an impact that companies even if they're scrambling at the last minute to do something about it are realizing that actually they need to look at closely at what they do with people's data and and really sort that out and not just a dating their privacy policies because they feel like it because they're actually obliged to be more transparent about what they do with people's data and to provide more information but it's also about having this kind of justification for what
1:24 pm
what they're doing with your data and and that is one of the reasons we're seeing this but it is also this kind of scramble at the last minute but. today we as the law takes effect is very much just the beginning ok we all agree to terms and conditions that none of us i mean let's be honest no this really reads these new regulations make it easier for the likes of you and die to protect personal data this puts the onus back on the companies doesnt it. so yes exactly that and what she does is it really puts the burden it puts the onus on those using our data to own companies to and to be able to explain this what they're doing in a clear concise and accessible way so it's really on then to make it accessible individuals shouldn't have to become data protection expertise or have to go in and about with complicated pretty settings in order to be able to trust that their data
1:25 pm
will be protected where europe leads will the rest of the world follow is the road open rift between the u.s. on the one hand and europe over data. so there are different approaches to the way data is protected around the world but we can see more and more data protection regulation around the world and yes it's a did a different world in the u.s. in terms of corporate exploitation of data and people's data a used and ways that wouldn't they wouldn't expect and there's been a kind of real failure with the central regulation regulation of courage in the u.s. and that's where we've seen for example recently with the facebook in cambridge analytical scandal that people are outraged not just in the e.u. but around the world including in the u.s. and consumers want more they want more protection they want to be able to trust companies with their data and sue i do think that regulation is an important step
1:26 pm
forward and it is forcing companies to take action and now that is coming to force it is time for it to be implemented and if it isn't implemented then there will be consequences and regulators have increased powers to enforce it and civil society is low going to be vigilant to the way that companies are implementing this little they need really good to talk to many thanks to you for being with us. at least nineteen people are missing after cycling makulu hit the gravity island of subculture a state of emergency has been declared evacuations are underway in nearby oman where the storm is expected to make landfall next muhammad valley reports now from the southern amani city of salalah. high waters ahead of the coming storm locals in the omani city of salada gather their belongings and scramble to evacuate buses and helicopters take the vulnerable out of the path of cyclonic emergency services are

1:40 pm
the u.s. and the and north korea she's she she responded uncharacteristically she's normally a very measured person she's a very well traveled intelligent person she's well known in new york but she took offense at my pincers comments and that is the context there's been no statement by kim jong un himself i think president trump and those around him of over react to the normally the real issue is that the north koreans will never accept and have never accepted at have made quite clear that unilateral denuclearization is not part of the deal they are prepared i am quite certain to undertake complete irreversible denuclearization but the quid pro quo must mean must be. a peace treaty to win the state of war the official statement on the sixth

of march issued through the office of the president of south korea on behalf of the p.r. nyang regime said that they would have no need for nuclear weapons if this security were guaranteed and if the hostile threat from indicted states was removed that's all they want i don't even think they care too much about. isn't trump's office of trade they can trade with china for all they need but what they do want is to end the state of war two in the permanent hostility to engage and have the peace treaty which was the basis for the armistice in nineteen fifty three unfortunately washington has form in this matter because the peace treaty was predicated on there being good faith negotiations to replace the peace treaty that replaced the armistice with a peace treaty in fact when the parties made in geneva in one hundred fifty four

the us secretary of state foster dulles would have nothing to do with it he wouldn't even shake the hand of the chinese foreign minister and he treated north korea like a pariah out things have just gone on in the same way three years later it was the united states who announced that they were unilaterally abrogating the armistice by introducing nuclear weapons on to the peninsula and it's no wonder that from the nineteen midnite hundred fifty s. onwards the north koreans began their research and development into their own nuclear deterrent against the threat which they perceived from the united states so the best thing the best thing that's happened in the last twenty four hours is that the first vice minister for foreign affairs kim key one has issued and he's he's cherry so on huey's boss has issued issued a very measured statement keeping the door open michael we're going to have to leave it there many thanks for being with us michael pembroke there live in sydney
